A. Divorce Coaching takes a holistic approach to the divorce process and woven into this approach is the significance of addressing the emotional component. That’s why as a Divorce Coach, my primary focus is to help my clients feel less overwhelmed by addressing the emotional whirlwind which in turn, empowers them to reclaim control and redirect the way forward with clarity and resolve.
This then allows us to take a comprehensive and objective look at all the areas impacted by divorce…legal, financial, personal, physical, relationships, career, kids etc., addressing your concerns, needs, and desires in each area, and then help you explore the options that are best for you.
So, when you go and engage with your divorce team (attorney, financial consultant, etc), you will show up organized and prepared and not caught up in the emotional story of divorce that only serves to fuel the uncertainty. Instead, you will be clear on what you want and have your emotions in check. You will ask relevant questions, be decisive and have a plan to manage obstacles that might get in the way. As a result, you will be a better partner for your divorce team, giving them clear directive as they work diligently towards your desired outcome.
The big win for you is that you take back control of your life and direct the process (instead of abdicating that responsibility to someone else). This in turn will help save you a lot of time and money and minimize unnecessary suffering. It also offers you an opportunity to walk away from this experience with your dignity intact.
 
A. I can help you prepare for a divorce by explaining the divorce process and creating a plan for next steps. I can streamline the divorce process by offering advice and recommendations for clients’ divorce teams (attorneys, financial advisors, therapists, etc) and give guidance when preparing for court or mediation appointments. I will be there to offer you in-person or virtual support, develop communication strategies, and be a source of support during difficult litigation and the child custody evaluation process. I will also help you to organize and prepare your important documents. As you know, children are one of the most important things to consider during a divorce. I can help develop a parenting plan and give you tools to become an amazing co-parent. Overall, I teach clients to become their own best advocate and develop ways to practice self-love for a bright future.
A. It takes a team of divorce professionals to help you through this process. For instance, you’re going to need an attorney, maybe a therapist or mediator, financial consultant, parenting experts, etc. Each of them focuses on a specific aspect of the divorce process. For instance, the attorney’s focus is on the legal execution to ensure that your legal rights are protected in the settlement, the Financial Consultant focuses on making sure you make sound financial decisions, and so on. It works much better when you come to these professionals prepared, organized and focused on what we call the “business of divorce” as opposed to being unorganized, unprepared and caught up in the emotional story of divorce. And that’s where Divorce Coaching comes in. I can help you work through your emotions, as well as help you connect with the right divorce attorney, financial consultant, real estate agent, and therapist for your specific needs.

Working with a therapist can arm a person with skills to work through the difficulties of the divorce and gain a deeper knowledge of themselves.
A. I know what you are going through, because I have been there. I found myself in a foreign country, unfamiliar with its laws and ways of doing things, no family to lean on, embroiled in a bitter divorce and custody battle with no seeming end in sight.
